So shocked and saddened to learn of Bryan’s passing. Although our connection was business (Credit Union) related, I always considered Bryan a good friend and someone who I could share a laugh and good time with. He always had a smile on his face and was quick with a joke or one-liner that would lighten the mood or break tension in business meetings and formal settings. Rest well my friend. All of us in the Credit Union world that got to know you over the years will miss you. Dale Ward - Posted by: Dale Ward (Friend and business associate) on: Sep 26, 2020
So sad to hear of Bryan’s passing. He was not only my boss but a mentor and friend. I have never known such a kind and gentle soul. We shared many stories and laughs together. You’ve gone too soon. - Posted by: Brenda Sabescay (Coworker ) on: Sep 26, 2020
Bryan will be missed by all that worked with him at Palliser. Not only was he an excellent co-worker he was a friend to so many at the work place and often made tough days so much easier to get through with his support and humour. Refreshments and wings at Smitty’s will never be the same RIP my friend! - Posted by: Conrad Kiesman (Coworker) on: Sep 26, 2020
